Light, the mastermind. So did his whole plan hinge on the FBI agent (is that Tom Cruise??) sitting right behind him so he could read the note? Wouldn’t it be more natural for him to sit somewhere else in a near empty bus? Not to mention that asking for proof that you’re not an accomplice seems rather silly - no ordinary citizen could provide such proof.
(What I thought he meant to do was make the criminal shoot and wound the agent. This way he would probably be named in the newspapers the next day. )
Also the criminal could very well have ignored the piece of paper, but I suppose that had to happen, because how else would he be able to see Ryuku as written in the Death Note.
Huh, thanks, it would never have crossed my mind. I was trying to figure out how to combine あった and まい in a way that makes sense…
(Edit: I can’t find it in any dictionary, and not even Deepl catches it (it says “lukewarm”). Very frustrating. I guess it’s the way it would be pronounced casually?)
It’s a very good plan, but definitely leaves room for error. I think a tail would sit a few rows behind to not be spotted. But guess we can excuse it as “wanting to be close enough to listen in”. And even if the first part happened, he know Kira needs to know his name to kill, so would never show his badge (and why assume Kira would kill the hijacker? He might not know his name). Guess we can assume it’s cause he felt Light wasn’t Kira already. But yeah, definitely ran the “perfect course,” despite having room for error. The paper being picked up can be excused as forced by the Death note, for the text to run the course asked, but seeing the agents name comes down to luck.
狂い doesn’t only mean madness, but also irregularity; deviation. So I’d assume it means “perfect/ flawless/ with no deviation”.
The girl is just some random girl (schoolmate?) in his contacts. As he says to Ryuku, he’s pretty popular. He did tell her the addict is small and weak so he can beat him. 刑事である父に教わっている= taught by my father who’s a police officer. He’s basically saying his policeman father has taught him how to disarm someone.
Is it on Jisho? I couldn’t find it there. Or do you mean searching on google?
Yes, that’s already mentioned a little earlier. Before getting into the bus, the FBI agent is already convinced Raito is just a hard-working student, son of a police officer, but still a normal person and not Kira. Also, an important detail that only L knows or has a suspicion about is that Kira needs both the face and a name of the victim, while the police officers assume seeing the possible 犯罪者 is enough for Kira to be able to kill, which is not true.
I think she’s just a random highschooler who has hots for Raito. That’s kind of only implied, but apparently he’s popular.
小柄 - small build/stature
he’s of small build and 弱々しい (frail)
Learned from his father who’s a police detective.
EDIT: Oh whoops. looks like @omk3 explained the stuff before. Apologies!
